Computer Systems Architecture

A Networking Approach

 

Second edition

 

Rob Williams

 

The new edition of Computer Systems Architecture has been brought up to date with extended descriptions of ARM and Itanium processors and an extended

introduction to the field of data communications.  Its established approach emphasizes that the vast majority of modern computers are not stand-alone devices, but cooperate with others in a networked environment.  Numerous practical exercises underline the importance of thoroughly understanding the hardware/software interaction to achieve optimum performance.

 

Highlights of the Second Edition include:

 

Ø      A new chapter on Distributed Computing, introducing parallel, cluster and grid configurations including IBM’s Cell processor;

Ø      A separate chapter on Intel’s 64-bit Itanium processor, a key architecture for the post-RISC era;

Ø      The ARM CPU is used as the primary example of microcontroller design;

Ø      Updated and expanded coverage of USB communications and ADSL broadband equipment;

Ø      New coverage of MPEG algorithms for audio and video compression in portable devices.

 

 Computer Systems Architecture is an ideal introductory text for students of Computer Science or Engineering, laying the foundations for more detailed courses on Networking.

 

Dr Rob Williams is Head of the Computer Systems Technology School at the University of the West of England in Bristol, specializing in Real-Time systems.  He has also worked as a Microprocessor Systems Engineer for GWE/GKN, Marconi Avionics and Nexos Office Systems.
